 GREAT FALLS, MT
Tragedy has struck our small community in Great Falls. On September 6, 2016, loving wife, mother, and dear friend Rita Maze was kidnapped and attacked while traveling back to her home in Great Falls, Montana after a trip to see her mother in Helena. She was found deceased in Spokane in her car. We as a community will come together in this horrific time for the Maze family. We need to do whatever it takes to make things easier for the family to grieve. Proceeds will go to helping to defray service expenses for this genuinely beautiful soul. Anything helps and is much appreciated. Please pray for the Maze family, they need all the support and strength they can get right now. God bless.. UPDATE::::: Thursday, September 8, 2016.. 9:00 P.M. Mountain time. I am so amazed with the response.. I for sure did not see that coming. I thought the $10,000 goal just for the funeral expenses may have been a far fetched request and that even after weeks we might not make it.. But, with the utmost joy and appreciation, I am in disbelief yet happy to announce that we have well surpassed our goal for the services fund for the Maze family.. Thank you to all the acquaintances, friends, and even strangers who selflessly donated to this worthy cause. The remaining balance of the funds will first and foremost go to any additional expenses of the funeral, cremation, and transport of the body of Rita Maze.. The generous leftover donations will be rightfully and evenly split between her husband, whom is currently laid off, Bob Maze.. Then to her daughter, Rochelle Maze and soon-to-be son in law Christian Brokl, to assist in the purchase of her dream wedding dress and wedding expenses.. And then also on to her son, Michael Maze, his children & Rita's beloved grandchildren, Addyson and Carly. Thank you for all your sincerity and support for the Maze family in their time of need. God bless. Please share.. You all made such a positive difference in a terrible situation. You are appreciated. ❤️

What a heartbreaking tragedy. This story hits so close to home with two daughters who travel alone quite often (and one to Montana, just last week). Just this last week i warned my daughter not to stop at a rest stop as she was traveling up north at night and wanted to stop to view the northern lights. It is my hope that if anything good can come out of such a devastating loss, it is that the story of your mother/wife/ loved one spreads a message to other single travelers not to stop at rest stops alone, saving other's lives. I am so sorry about your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with all your friends and family.

Everyone needs to realize the impact this tragedy has had on this family! They have all of the burial expenses and they have to be able to get her son (who's in the military serving YOUR country) and his family home for the services! Honestly, you want to try and put a price tag on that??? Thank God that Shanley started this page for the Maze family! If anyone has anything negative to say, for God's sake please keep it to yourself, the family hurts enough already! (And for those of you who have been able to help, thank you and God bless you. )

Very disturbing, very sad. Murders are awful and despicable. Been in that situation. Plantings tree and decorating it for birthdays and Holidays help sending love

It doesn't matter if she was murdered or committed suicide, a family of human beings is dealing with the lose of a dear and loved family member. The feelings of sadness, grief, and loss are just the same. To all of the family's and friends of Rita, may time heal your pain and this woman loved by so many rest in peace.

I'm so sad as I read this about Rita Maze. My heart is so heavy with grief and I didn't personally know her but can only imagine what she went through those past few hours of her life and how her family was trying so desperately to find her. My heart goes out to them all. I don't understand why mankind has gotten so cruel to one another. I pray the Lord takes her in his arms and brings peace and comfort to all those who are grieving her death. Again, please accept my condolences and my heartfelt sympathies. God bless you all in this tragic time.

I pray that the lord comforts your family during this difficult. I can't imagine something this horrible happening to me or my family. The only comfort you can get from this , that your story helps so many others to be careful when traveling alone.
